Halloween Photo Week, 2016: Wizardy Witch

I did 3 costumes shoots this year, scaling back from my usual 5, but a couple of them were pretty involved.

First up is some kind of Wizardy Witch

I went down to our basement, where I usually shoot my Halloween photos, and found it thoroughly infested with wasps. I’m allergic, last I checked, and my mom is so allergic she carries an epi-pen . I haven’t been stung by a wasp in 20 years and I’m not really afraid of them, they didn’t seem that bothered by me, but I decided it wasn’t worth dying for a few good pictures.

So I had to relocate my shoot to this slightly overgrown back garden area that is really exposed to the neighborhood. Sheepish about doing this thing I do in public, especially since I tend to dramatically overact when I shoot my Halloween photos. I had to keep crouched down to keep houses and alleyway out of the frame, but I’m happy with the concept. My original idea was a witch doing magic in the woods, so the greenery helped with that. I would love to visit some bug-free forest and do something truly magical with this amazing dress.

Halloween Week 2010

Yup! I haven’t posted here since last December. In October I get this creative burst.  It’s a little slow this year, for various reasons, but it’s here. It usually starts with Halloween week, I gather together a few costume concepts and shoot one a day the week leading up to Halloween.

This is what I have so far this year:

Day one – Eli from Let the Right One In


Day two – Zombie Tourist


Day three – Spooky Spectre

i grow so weary of the sound of screams...
Day four – Scarecrow

Then, of course, comes NaNoWriMo and November. I manage to update here almost every day, it goes very well and I have high hopes of continuing through December, and then, I just don’t. Will I get high hopes again this year? Of course! We’ll just have to wait and see if I follow through.

In other NaNoWriMo news, I made a twitter to update in 140 characters or less incessantly throughout NaNoWriMo, little victories and setbacks as they happen! Please check it out @wigglewriterly
